Stainless is not the way to go, it work hardens due to heat or stress leading to crystalline cracking, not really not what you want on a starter clutch.
To be honest I’m not sure the tensile strength of the bolts is the issue, I’d guess that if any one bolt comes lose the other two are going to fail due to the starter clutch separating from the flywheel and leveraging the other two bolts.
Loctite seems like the best bet to me, given that the threads in the flywheel have stripped on one twin I owned, it doesn’t make much difference how strong the bolts are given that the plate they screw into is only mild steel.
